6:00 pm
that's confidence. >> it's unbelievable. knowing at the time that tiger is in that deep bunker and there's no such par for him down there, he's totally in control of the event at that point. you would think it would stay left of the hole. for him to hit that, i was floored by it and maybe even more floored by the fact he held him out at the next one. >> greg overlin with northwestern mutual. we're going to play 10, 17 and 18. and zach, you finished first, so you draw the hat. >> 1. >> zach, you're leading off. >> i'll leave you on the tee, zach. >> okay.
6:01 pm
>> he visited with us earlier today from northwestern mutual. zach has the honor. >> you can't defer to the second half. >> that's right. you got to take the ball now when you draw number 1. >> on the flip side now, for both players, but i guess zach even more. you got to bring that hard rein back down, regroup and sigh. that's what you do when you walk back to the tee. and play hard again. >> that's right, it's all about regaining focus, being in the moment, not letting your mind wander, taking the shot at hand to task. this is the shot you need to perform right now. >> kurt is out there to witness
6:02 pm
that. right down the right side. that is ideal. beautiful tee shot. noda is out there following tiger again. he did not have a beautiful tee shot his first time out here. gave himself a very difficult situation on the left. >> headed down the right side, drawing back to the left portion of the fairway. >> with a little different shot shape, a little different attempt at it. misses that giant divot. >> well positioned. much better than in regulation. speaking of regulation, the fourth shot drop zone -- it's good. playoff.
6:03 pm
yeah! playoff. >> tiger just saying, are you kidding me? we should play ev-ree tpc course in da' country. yea, we're at the turn and dis guy's puttin like uh, what's his name? like bran't sneda-kerr? yeaaa.

6:04 pm
tiger woods, zach johnson first playoff hole. you see them back on the fairway, both players. zach a little bit longer than he was the first time off the 18th
6:05 pm
tee and tiger in much better shape than he was. >> much simpler approach for tiger. >> zach virtually the same shot that he faced earlier. tiger being further back and first to play will have the chance to apply some pressure to zach. >> just the second playoff in the history of this event. this is the 15th year. that last playoff we had with graeme mcdowell and tiger was some doozie. see what we have in store here. >> 2010 tiger lost that one to graeme. >> it's been a while but we had 74 over there. a little different shot because it's down the hill, but you get a little feel for the shot.
6:06 pm
you know what i mean? you have five behind you at the backstop. >> joey said what they had at 9? that's been a long while. >> he said it was a little while ago. >> a little. noda, what do you think here? >> it's going to be a tiny little 7-iron. probably a little left to right, just split the left edge of the green to the hole and let it drift back slightly to his feet. >> this is kind of a flighted sevener. >> here we go. >> he started up the center and he's like, oh, this has got to get up. that's the same place he was the first time around. and the same amount of work to do.
6:07 pm
we'll see what happens here. he might have got up a little bit ahead of it and the blade got a little too open, that impact made it go a little right of where he wanted to, but i wouldn't suspect he would hit it in the same place again. >> this is left of the flag maybe 30 feet. >> roger, you're right. he is protecting against what he did the first time around. >> there's no question. >> on that correct level, though, woods heading up and down from the bunker, no doubt. >> on sunday night, football night. sunday night football coming your way. the panthers taking on the saints. both teams 9-3. panthers an eight-game winning streak. bob costas hosting football night in america 7:00/4:00
6:08 pm
pacific. >> woods, been here done that. that deja vu thing going on for tiger. and thankfully for zach, not for him. >> tiger thinking, i've got to hit a good bunker shot. i've got to force zach to feel like he's got to hold the putt. but still, you know, that bunker isn't any less deep than it was. it's still a tough shot out of there. >> roger, you know what, though, with the things that have happened here, i don't buy into the fact that anyone has an advantage at this point. what we just saw in regulation, what happened to graeme mcdowell back in 2010? tiger was within three feet, mcdowell had like a 25-footer and made the putt. >> he forced tiger to have to do it. >> i am not saying he doesn't have a good opportunity to make
6:09 pm
it. he does, but first things first. tiger has got to hit a good bunker shot. >> everybody on the golf course turns to spectators right here around the clubhouse and it's a good lie. >> i woumight have settled just little bit by its own weight. that's the area they just played from, it's just been raked. so sand a little softer, probably, than it was the first time around. >> it's tough to even see right there because it is such a deep bunker. >> i walked by and it is a good lie, not a great lie. as you saw tiger's original shot released a little bit, i think
6:10 pm
he's going to have to play first. a slight bit of release on this one as well. >> maybe a little bit shy, but still a very good bunker shot from there. >> so that left the par. just throw the club underneath the ball, keep the club face open. he needs to get some height on the ball to get it to land softly. that's how deep that bunker is. he couldn't even see it. he had to come above the bunker to get a peek at it. >> but it does open the door for
6:11 pm
zach ajohnson and a putt that ws very similar to the one graeme mcdowell had and made back in 2010. >> it is very similar. just about the same location. and you always like having a putt to win. and that's what he's facing. a putt to win. >> he's looking out there to the left a little bit, probably just inside tiger's mark somewhere. slide to his right. >> and it's uphill. he can give it a little bit of a roll here. >> for the win. right over the mark. >> that was a good putt.
6:12 pm
very good putt. >> it went right over the mark. and may have changed the line on it a little bit, rog. >> let's see -- yeah, it takes a little bauble. >> that's a 4 for zach. tiger left with a putt that's just outside what you'd like to have. they didn't ask him to move the mark. he's right on that line. >> here's the putts that aren't so much fun. you got to make 'em to move on. >> and rog, this putt is no gimme. if not properly stroked, it will go across the face of the hole. probably have to put it on the left edge. >> zach already referencing his
6:13 pm
yardage book. he probably has his mind ahead, convinced that tiger will hold his putt. he's thinking about what he'll do on the next playoff hole should he get there. 10. >> i think most feel that way. however, you got to putt it. no! and it's zach johnson who will steal tiger's thunder and take his trophy. the final time here at sherwood. >> two things you don't see. tiger missing a putt like that to lose an event and then smiling afterwards. >> only because it's tiger woods would you think, all right, this is almost a gimme.
6:14 pm
>> the issue there, he just struck too firmly. >> you can tell zach's surprised. he never thought he would finish in that fashion. >> let's go down to kurt. >> all right. zach, what an incredible finish. i know you hated to see tiger miss that putt, but take us back to the 72nd hole. your second shot with an 8-iron and then the wedge shot. what was going through your mind there? >> it wasn't a big one. it was one of those you hit it just a little hard, a little left, so i was trying to take a little off it. i didn't complete my backswing. it was just a bad swing. got caught up in the moment. and then certainly the next shot was a little too dramatic for me, but, you know, i guess i was teasing it in the holes previous. a lot of luck but i had a good number and very lucky it went in. >> congratulations on the win. steve? >> kurt, thank you.
6:15 pm
tiger is talking about a tough runner-up win. what were you thinking when you saw zach go on the fairway? >> i thought either way i'm not going to be able to win the tournament, but i still have to get up and down in either case. you hold it and then mine is still going to have to stand and i'll have to make it, and i was able to make it the first time around. >> you told me you thought sunday would be an emotional day for you because it was the final day the challenge would be held at sherwood. what were you thinking as you went through these 18 holes today? >> trying to win. that's all i was trying to do. i got it up to, i think, three and zach -- i don't know how the last three iron shots didn't go in the hole. it was pretty impressive what he did on 16, 17 and 18. he got me. >> terry, back to you. >> wow, what a finish, huh, rog?
6:16 pm
tying he referen tiger referenced the close shots the drop zone in regulation, holding it, coming right back, and tiger missing the putt. >> lot of fun to watch. >> winning in a playoff, zach johnson. this in regulation after hitting it in that hazard for a par. and woods up and down missing the putt in a playoff to lose to zach johnson the final time here at sherwood.
